If you remember from a week ago (I know that in internet years, a week is a millenium), I took time off from the blog to get some writing done. And while I did get writing done (I finished the first draft of The Boss, so that's something), I didn't get nearly as much done as I do on weeks when I'm blogging according to my regular schedule. Let's check out the stats:
Word count for the week beginning March 18: 10,001
Word cout for the week beginning March 25: 3987
WTF, how did that happen? The only explanation I can come up with is that the blog keeps me so busy that when I decide to take time off from that, I don't know how to keep working. Like, removing that one thing from my day throws the entire system into utter chaos and I get nothing at all done. Isn't that bizarre?
So, the blog is back. You can expect a Buffy recap tomorrow, and 50 Shades Freed recap later in the week. Roadhouse is still on hiatus until April 19th, so D-Rock and I can get our taxes done and detox from our Drunk of Thrones! project. During the month of April, I will also be finishing up the last half of Such Sweet Sorrow, which has a May 1 deadline, and after that I start work on The Girlfriend so that it can release as a complete ebook as close to the end of The Boss as possible. And the good news is, I'll be able to get all this stuff done because I'll be blogging, and that's apparently the only thing that can keep me on track and motivated to do my actual work. So, thank you, Trout Nation, for being my unintentional accountability system.
Also, my tweep @MissJuuko sent me this suggestion for the emblem and flag of Trout Nation. When considered beside @MandiReiSerra's literal Trout Fan, this is proof that you guys are absolutely terrifying and bizarre. Keep it up, guys!
